for lynn's family, the big stress is paying four hundred dollars a month in medical and drug costs for aidan. for other families it's higher deductibles, premiums and co-pays that keep adding up. that's why we've got to crack down on price gouging, cap out-of-pocket costs, and fast track approval of less expensive generic drugs. because we've got to get health care costs under control for lynn's family

approve this message. >> osgood: it r was the heist of the 20th century. creating a mystery that lingers into the 21st. erin moriarty of "48 hours" tells the tale. >> entering the isabella stuart gardner museum in boston is like taking a step back in time. the lavish courtyard and art-filled rooms designed by its
9:29 am
much as she left them a century ago. except for 13 empty spaces. when you walk by here you have all of these wonderful pieces and then you see this empty panel. >> it makes me want to weep. it's time to bring them back. >> the fbi tonight is looking for two thieves who made off with a motherlode of art treasure from a boston museum overnight. >> on march 18, 1990, anne hawly received news no museum director to wants to hear. >> around 8:00 in the morning. director here. he told me there had been a theft. >> did you have any idea of how be? >> no. not until i got into the room. >> earlier that morning at 1:24 a.m., two men dressed as police officers arrived at the museum's employee entrance.
9:30 am
and thieves says, boston police. we're responding to a disturbance. based on that alone the guard buzzed them into the building. >> the current museum security chief, an annie amore describes. >> the two phony police officers said this is robbery. >> the night watch man who let them in, rick abath was tied up in the basement. 81 minutes later, the thieves had pulled off the priciest art heist in history. walking out with an estimated half billion dollars worth of art. it was devastating. it's like having a death in the family. these works are so important. >> the only known seascape painted by rembrandt.
9:31 am
were so agitated and so strong it just drew you towards it. >> gone, rembrandt's "a lady and gentleman in black" as well as self portrait etching. >> i think that they were targeting rembrandts and then they decided to just take some other things. >> the thieves may have thought, landscape with an obelisk was also a rembrandt. it was actually painted by one of his students. also gone, five works by degas. and manet's, an ancient chinese beaker. and flag finial. but the most heartbreaking loss for hawley was a painting by vermerr one of only 36 in existence. >> this was "the concert" and gardner set it up so you could sit in this chair just contemplate the picture.
9:32 am
nothing about art. leaving behind more valuable pieces and using box cutters to remove paintings from frames. the thieves pulled them off the walls, shattered the glass and cut the paintings out. >> this is one of the paintings that had been cut out of the frame? >> fbi special ailing geoff kelly. >> these guys were burglars. just as easily stolen a car or somebody's tv. they didn't know what they were doing. these were not sophisticated art thieves. they woke up the next morning after the gardner heist i believe unwittingly realizing they just committed the heist of the century. >> but apparently they were smart enough, more than 25 years later, no arrests have been made. and none of the art has been recovered. >> when people say, well, why is it so important?
9:33 am
never hear beethoven's 7th symphony again, ever. vermerr is certainly at that level of creation. these are major iconic works. to have them removed, just ripped from the culture is a crime. it's really he a crime against civilization. >> since 2002, special agent kelly has run the fbi task force that continues to search for the art. >> there's nothing like it. there's nothing that compares to a group of individuals bluffing their way into a museum by posing as police officers, spending 81 minutes inside the museum, with a comfort level that's unheard of. taking their time, being deliberate and disappearing into the night. these thieves definitely had inside information. >> which brings us back to the security guard who let the
9:34 am
>> if the police come to your facility and ask for admission and you haven't called for them you then calm the police and there. >> he didn't do it? >> no. >> abath then 23-year-old musician moonlighting as a guard, quickly fell under suspicion. especially after investigators discovered something perplexing in one of the galleries called "the blur room." >> this is where the biggest mysterys right? >> yes. >> did the thieves come in here? >> well, at some point in the evening somebody came in here and stole a painting off our wall. >> manet's chez tortoni was taken from the blue room. the problem is the museum's motion detectors tracked no movement at all in that room during the entire 81 minute heist.
9:35 am
and 2:45 a.m. did any alarm on this floor get tripped. >> the only person who had been in the room that night was rick abath when he made his nightly rounds. >> someone went in the blue room that night, only one that went in that room was the security guard according to the motion sensor printouts. >> doesn't that mean he had to be involved in this? >> one of the aspects of this case that we continue to investigate. >> but he's never been arrested. >> no. >> abath has always denied he had anything to do with the robbery. now is it possible he assisted without knowing he did? that he was just gave all that information. >> that's possible, too. quite possible that somebody was just talking at a party or at a bar out of turn and someone took note of what they were saying. >> but just this summer a video was released by the justice department that raises even more questions about the former security guard.
9:36 am
show abath just 24 hours before the heist allowing an unidentified man to enter the closed museum. was this a trial run? rick abath now lives a quiet life in vermont. we went there hoping he might be willing to talk about that video. hi. hi, rick, i'm erin moriarty with cbs news "sunday morning." >> he wasn't. but the fact is, even if he was involved in the robbery he can't be prosecuted. the statute of limitations has run out. >> somebody who was involved in the original theft of paintings they could not be charged for it. as far as possessing it, if they came forward wanted to return them they would not be arrested. >> just want the art back. >> just want the art back.
9:37 am
why was it taken? and most important, how did they get it back? that is all authorities want to know now and they believe this man holds the key. that's coming up. now there's xifaxan is a new that helps relieve your diarrhea and abdominal pain symptoms. and xifaxan works differently. it's a prescription antibiotic that acts mainly in the digestive tract. a history of sensitivity to rifaximin, rifamycin antibiotic agents, tell your doctor right away while taking xifaxan, as this may be a sign of a serious or even fatal condition. tell your doctor if you have liver disease or are taking other medications, because these may increase the amount of xifaxan tell your doctor if you are pregnant,
9:38 am
the most common side effects are nausea and an increase if you think you have talk to your doctor about new xifaxan. enough pressure in here for ya?
9:39 am
take off. these dissolve fast. they're new liquid gels. and you're coming with me... you realize i have gold status? mucinex sinus-max liquid gels. dissolves fast to unleash max strength medicine. let's end this. >> osgood: we just saw a step by step account of the art heist of the century. so what's happened in the more than 25 years since? once again, erin moriarty with chapter two. >> how does half a billion dollars worth of art simply vanish?
9:40 am
museum heist has tantalized investigators so long it has even etched itself into pop culture. >> do you want to explain how this miracle of measure and harmony got into your collection? >> but as fbi special agent geoff kelly knows all too well, life doesn't always imitate, well, the simpsons. >> the people that took these paintings don't have them hidden in a private art gallery sitting back. these paintings are most likely up in an attic or basement not being viewed by anyone. >> investigators have long believed that members of organized crime pulled off the heist. the idea was to either hold the art for ransom or trade it for reduced prison sentences. so over the years the fbi and the boston police department scoured the criminal underground but came up with nothing. >> i would say in the last ten
9:41 am
a dozen or so moments where we're really looked at each other like, this is it. it hasn't panned out. >> these need to be holding the spot for the works to come back. >> the most dramatic close call says museum director happened in the summer of 1997. >> i first found out by reading it in the "boston herald." >> in bold headlines announced that one of the it's investigative reporters had gotten a glimpse of the missing rembrandt seascape, signature and all. >> very exciting to think that this might be the beginning of the end. and lead to the return of the paintings. >> like something out of a crime thriller, tom mashberg was taken in the dead of night to a warehouse in brooklyn, new york, by an antiques dealer with a criminal past.
9:42 am
removed a painting out of a large tube. >> it was pulled out, kind of unfurled and i was not able to touch it and really get close i was able to look at it under the beam of a flashlight. what i looked at appeared to me to be an aged painting with a lot of the earmarks of an authentic 17th century work of art. >> youngworth, who who was facing unrelated theft charges, said he'd turn over the rembrandt and other art to authorities in exchange for immunity. there was just one hitch. >> the paintings are thick. not like fabric, they had been relined. >> museum security chief says the stolen recommend rant couldn't have been rolled. >> it would crack the paint? >> imagine cardboard, give it that turn, this isn't going to
9:43 am
>> to bolster his claim that he had access to the missing art, mashberg was given paint chips as proof. >> this is ridiculous no. one is going to get any information out of this. >> but the chips were analyzed and here is where the story takes another dramatic turn. they weren't from the rembrandt but they may have come from a vermeer, what's more the chips happened to be the same color, known as red lake, as the blanket in the stolen painting "the concert." >> wouldn't that indicate that had to come from the vermeer at the gardner? >> i'm not disputing that. >> the analysis took time by then youngworth had stopped cooperating. in 2002 when geoff kelly took over he tried to pressure him into talking.
9:44 am
knows or what he does not know. i can just tell you that paint chips appear to be from vermeer despite the offers of immunity and reward, the painting has not been recovered. >> youngworth now 56 years old still selling antiques in massachusetts, refused to talk with us. and the fbi seems to have shifted its focus. >> for the first time we can say with high degree of confidence we've determined that in the years since the theft the art was transported to connecticut and to the philadelphia area. >> in march 2013 investigators revealed new details. they believe the original thieves are dead, but what they didn't share then was the name of the man they're convinced can lead them to the art. robert gentile. >> i believe that he knows either where some of the artwork
9:45 am
>> he's ailing, reputedly a member of the philadelphia la cosa nostra he's recordly heard talking about the art and in search of his connecticut home in may 2012 uncovered a list of the missing pieces and their market values. >> i certainly concede that that list is damning. >> but ryan, gentile's lawyer, says investigators are wrong. he says his client never had the art but may have tried to con art collectors into thinking he did. >> it is a quote that he said many times, i got caught in my own trap. >> he said that what does he mean by that? >> that he thought to himself he could fake people out into getting some money. >> gentile is in federal custody facing a long prison term on an unrelated gun charge.
9:46 am
jail tree free card not to mention the $5 million reward he would be eligible to collect. >> i tell him time and time again, is there anything that you're not telling me? because you know if there is, you would be really comfortable in aruba. he says, i got nothing. >> and that is where the trail goes cold. it's been over 25 years, does that mean this was the perfect crime? >> no. this was the antithesis of the perfect crime. >> it's still gone. >> nobody got any money off of these paintings. the perfect crime means you get away with it and you profit from the crime. i don't believe that anybody has profited at all from this crime. >> but many have been hurt by it. what do you miss the most? vermeer.
9:47 am
someone will call the museum with information so she can see the priceless work back on museum walls before she retires at the end of the year. do you fear that the paintings will never be seen again? >> i can't go there. i think these works are out there. and that somehow, if we can just appeal to whomever is holding them that we can get them back. >> osgood: still to come. any more. >> brie larson. could she win the oscar? and, celebrating sinatra. you will not hear from our president:

>> osgood: a question for every parent. what to tell the children. here is steve hartman. >> so far my two boys, 7-year-old george and 5-year-old emmett, have grown up inside a protective bubble of my creation. so far, my wife and i have shielded them from the terror attacks and just about every orbit of bad news on the planet. the goal was to keep them as carefree as possible as long as possible. but recently i started wondering if that was the right approach. so to find out what's best for my kids i consulted some experts, my kids. a lot of parents are wondering if they should tell their kids when bad things happen in the world. >> it might be really interesting to some kids. >> would you want to know? >> no. not really. >> there is a bit of ostrich in all of us. but i learned the biggest bird
9:51 am
think we can just gloss over terror with a white lie. you know nothing can ever happen to you, right? >> it would, but it's really rare. i can never get you to understand that. because it's really unlikely but still has a chance. >> what do you say to that? other than, you're right. i went on to tell them a little bit about the recent attacks. >> did they die? >> yeah. >> but in the end my kids didn't need to talk as much as i needed to listen. they told me in the future i should be more honest about world events but only ones that really matter. >> like if there's a war in the united states lost the or. >> that's how we left it. we finished night with a book i always turn to. dr. seuss' about rise and fall. i read it mostly for myself as
